EPISODE REVIEWS


Scott Wolf / Natalie Imbruglia
March 7, 1998


OPENING SKETCH: Larry King interviews everybody

Best part was when Clinton tries to introduce the show and Larry King stops him. The constant introductions got a bit irritating.

RATING: B

 

MONOLOGUE: Scott Wolf

My friend say been saying "Dickdickdickdickdick..." all week thanks to this skit. Trivia time; who was the last host to do a monologue without any help from cast members?

RATING: B

 

SKETCH: Mary Catherine Gallagher at T.G.I. Friday's

These skits with MCG are getting weird. Where the hell did that hooker monologue come from?

RATING: B-

 

SKETCH: The Celine Dion show

Tim Meadows' impression of Erykah Badu was pretty poor, but was really funny. "That don't go over in Baduland." CLASSIC! Cheri's Mariah Carey has also very funny.

RATING: B+

 

SKETCH: Party of Five

Tracy Morgan is really starting to come into his own. This was really funny.

RATING: A

 

WEEKEND UPDATE: Colin Quinn

A bit below par. The crowd really got into Jim Breuer's bit, but I didn't think it was that funny. Like the Garth Brooks show, having a guest commentator like Breuer or Ana's Cinder Calhoun takes away from Colin Quinn's great work.

RATING: B+

 

MUSIC: Natalie Imbruglia

I hope I spelled her name right. This was pretty good, seeing as how I had never heard of Natalie Imbruglia before tonight.

RATING: A-

 

SKETCH: Re-enactment awards

Darryl Hammond's impression of the guy from Rescue 911 is very good, and the awards show patter was funnily bad. Other than that, blah.

RATING: C

 

SKETCH: Spartan Cheerleaders at Titanic

These are getting old. Really old. I'm talking Hans and Frans old.

RATING: C

 

SKETCH: Issues

Well below the first Issues of the year. What was Scott Wolf's character supposed to be, because it certainly wasn't funny.

RATING: B-

 

DEEP THOUGHTS: Jack Handley

Pretty good.

RATING: A

 

SKETCH: Dueling Guitars

The greatest part of this skit was when Kattan asked the girl's name, and then played "Gloria" by U2, despite the girl's name being Diane. First it was part of a Kulps singalong, now here; does somebody at SNL like U2? If so, BOOK THEM ON THE FREAKING SHOW!

RATING: B

 

COMMERCIAL: Breath Spray Plus

I had never seen this one, and I found it pretty funny.

RATING: A

 

OVERALL: A pretty blah show. A big step down from the great

show with Garth Brooks last week.

OVERALL RATING: B-
